Despite evidence to the contrary, members of the mainstream media are unwilling to entertain the idea that we have been visited by inhabitants of far off planets. Why?
Members of the major national media (newspapers, radio, and television) have conspired with the government to cover-up information about extraterrestrial contact and contributed to its ridicule. This collusion was revealed in connection with the Roswell crash of 1947, although judging from the government’s response to, and the media’s cooperation with, there must have been knowledge of ET craft prior to that incident. There have been subsequent incidents which have been kept from the public.
On Wednesday, February 25, 1942, a huge unidentified craft hovered over the city of Los Angeles. This event, dubbed the “Battle of Los Angeles,” was witnessed by hundreds of thousands of residents of the area. Spotlights, intent on spotting Japanese aircraft, played over the motionless craft. The military lobbed almost 2,000 rounds of high explosive shells at the floating sphere. Six civilians were killed, others injured — the results of shells fragments. The Los Angeles Times reported the incident on page one. No national media carried the story.
Jumping ahead almost sixty years, on May 9, 2001, twenty men and women, led by Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project, appeared on the stage of the National Press Club in Washington, DC. All major television, radio, and print media were present. These twenty courageous people, a small sample of the several hundred from military, intelligence, government, corporate, and scientific areas who are prepared to testify, spoke about their first-hand experiences with extraterrestrial contact and related events. 250,000 people viewed it as a simulcast over the Internet. This groundbreaking event received virtually no mass media coverage. For more information go to: www.DisclosureProject.org
On October 22, 2002, the Coalition for Freedom of Information, headed by former White House chief of staff, John Podesta, called on the Pentagon to release classified files about incidents involving UFOs. That this announcement was done in conjunction with the Sci-Fi channel, and may have been done to promote upcoming programs, tarnishes its intent, but does not take away from another demand to open up classified information. CNN reported this news conference on 10/22/02.
More recently,former Canadian Minister for National Defense, Paul Hellyer is campaigning to open both the Canadian and American files on extraterrestrials.
Beginning with the publicity surrounding the so-called Roswell Incident in 1947, a steady stream of books has presented various points of view on UFOs and aliens. From Chariots of the Gods to current offerings, authors have sought to document contact with alien visitors to this planet. That their points of view have filled the spectrum, from sensational to scientific, from benign to adversarial, does not diminish the fact that they all sought to convey the reality of extraterrestrial contact. One has only to visit the UFO Museum in Roswell and see the testimonials of people involved in that incident to know that “something happened here in 1947.” For more on the UFO Museum go to: www.iufomrc.org
Repeated incidences of crop circles in southwest England, and elsewhere, speak to a different type of communication attempts by extraterrestrials. Despite efforts to debunk the phenomenon, scientific inquiry has proven energy anomalies in the patterns generated within these wheat fields.
